“All that you need”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2006

Our family stayed at Veranda's in August 06 for 9 nights. Two adults and two children were not a problem in these well appointed 2 bed , 2 bath apartments. All apartments are furnished to a high standard with a small welcome pack waiting for you. The location is great, two minutes walk to the main street with small bakery just two doors down the road. Port Douglas is very quaint and you can walk from Verandah's to the rest of town within 15 minutes.
The pool is small (but it's the same size as most other apt's in PD) but great for cooling off. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and great for the kids to play about.
Management team were very helpful and booked our reef trips (Calypso was great) and airport transfers.
We found the restaurants got very busy in the evenings so booking is recommended, but there is a great choice to suit all the family.
Would have no hesitation in recommending Verandah's to anyone wanting a relaxing place to stay whilst in Port Douglas.

Our family of 4 recently stayed at these apartments in Port Douglas and had a fantastic time. The 2 bedroomed apartments are furnished to a high standard with all the equipment and facilities needed to make your stay very comfortable.

The pool is small but perfectly adequate with a communal barbecue area supplied with gas and utensils.

The apartment have balconies which although close to other apartments, are secluded and large with a patio dining table and chairs.

The owners/managers are very friendly and helpful and this was a very pleasant place to stay.

Highly recommend and hope I can rerturn some day.

For anyone looking for somewhere to stay in and around Port Douglas or the Daintree, make sure you check out Verandahs Apartments. Just off Port Douglas' main street (which has great restaurants, and loads of cute shops, not to mention a beautiful palm-tree lined beach at one end!), Verandahs not only offered a friendly welome, but a great place to stay. We stayed in a huge two bedroom, two bathroom apartment for two nights in May (06); it was clean, smart, had great facilities (tv, cd player, washer/dryer, air con), comfy sofas, well-spec'd modern kitchen. Staff were happy to arrange everything for us from exucrsions to airport transfers, and have great local knowledge. Not the cheapest place we'd stayed on out three week Aussie trip, but definately one of the best!

We stayed at Verandahs Port Douglas during our break in May this year.
We found these apartments to be very conveniently located to all the shops and the beach. This was very handy and never once we wished that we had a car, because everything was so close.
The management were very helpful and friendly and the apartments are exceptionally clean and modern with all the appliances needed to make our stay comfortable.
With 4 adults staying together, it was a blessing to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and room to move.
Highly recommend Verandahs and hope to be there next year.

I stayed in a 2-bed and 2-bathroom apartment for 3 nights in April this year. It is a family run place and they are very friendly and helpful.

The apartment was absolutely lovely, very nicely furnished with modern decorations and furniture. We were very pleased with it indeed.

Both bedrooms were a good size and had ceiling fans (in addition to the air conditioning) and the bathrooms were very new/modern looking. The whole place was exceptionally clean. The lounge/dining area was a good size, with table and chairs, sofa, coffee table, telephone, TV and the kitchen was well equipped. We also made use of the washing machine/drier whilst we were there which was very useful indeed.

The apartments are located at one end of the main high street in Port Douglas and are only a 2 min walk away from juice bars, restaurants and the local shops, and 2 mins walk in the other direction is the famous four-mile beach.

I would definitely stay here again.

travelling as a couple with our teenage daughter,having 2 bedrooms was a real luxury compared with fitting the 3 of us into 1 hotel room.the apartment we had was both spacious and very well equiped,with nice furnishings and satilite tv.the location is a real bonus aswell,being less than 5 minute walk from either the beach or the main street.
this was our 1st visit to queensland and was intended to be a quiet 5 days in the middle of a busier holiday and in pursuit of this port douglas was a fantastic choice.we ate out every night and found the quality of food in each restaraunt we visited to be of a very high standard.the town has a really nice laid back feel and is somewhere we are already looking forward to visiting again.
if we had a complaint about verandahs,it was only a small one and that was ,the small pool area was too overgrown making it difficult to lounge around it during the day.it would certainly have benifited from some pruning.that aside we were very happy with our stay.

We wish we had three full days. One day on the reef with the Calypso Crew was awesome. Day two was a guided tour to the Daintree Rainforest. One more day would have allowed us to shop and chill out in the beautiful tropics. Verandah was perfectly located 100 meters from the shopping strip and beach.

We arrived in Cannes and hired a Bus to take us to Port Douglas. Only experienced drivers in Australia should rent a car and attempt the drive. The bus affords many beautiful views while driving. The trip is and hour and fifteen minutes.

Port Douglas was more than we expected. Charming, relaxed, but sophisticated. We loved the lush vegetation, and friendly people.
Plenty of resturants and pubs.
